Writing is the cornerstone of an educated citizenry. In an increasingly connected and global world, the ability to communicate is paramount. In such a world, there is a need for students to become flexible writers/communicators with the ability to move between the many environments and situations in which they will need to communicate. Our aim is to improve students’ writing and thinking, as well as to improve the teaching of these critical skills, both through the one-on-one work we do with students as well as through the work we do with instructors.
